Ronnie Henderson Web HeadshotWhat is your Day Job?

I am the Private Banking Manager for HomeStreet Bank.

What is your previous dance experience?

I grew up Two Stepping in the South (North Carolina).

Why are you dancing for Plymouth Housing Group?

I’m excited to raise money for those in our community that need the most important thing of all, a place to call home. I’ve been involved with Plymouth Housing Group for about 10 years now and am moved by their work, and dedication to helping people have a better life. Personally, they have helped me with my mom who suffers from mental illness. I am forever grateful to them for that, and witnessed first hand, the love and care they show to those who haven’t been shown much love and care in their life.

Where are you going to put your Mirror Ball Trophy when you win?

My office for sure! This will engage my clients and colleagues in a conversation about Plymouth, their mission, and why I chose to dance and help raise money for this amazing organization.
